From Simple to Demolition and Rebuild, SERVPRO Can Remediate Your Mold Problems in Cumming

Mold growth can be stopped quickly by removing the source of moisture. If the local environment is too dry, mold spores shrink and go dormant in a matter of days. Once dormant, the spores are no more harmful than normal house dust.

If mold damage in a Cumming home has gone unnoticed or ignored for too long, however, the only options remaining may be demolition and rebuilding. SERVPRO has the experience and training to deal with both options.

Demolition of the mold-infested property has its set of requirements. When the growth is thick enough, technicians must wear protective clothing to include masks and goggles. In extreme cases, breathing gear is needed. This additional gear slows down the process, adding to labor and equipment costs.

Certain types of mold may require disposing of the affected material by EPA and state environmental regulations. That may include bagging of property, placing mold infested structural items in a separate dumpster, and then disposing of it at specially designated waste sites.

Once the property is cleared out (to include drywall and ceiling tiles), we examine the structure. Floor, wall, and roof supports weakened by the mold require our technicians install additional columns, jacks, and other devices. Once set, they replace the damaged wood. If needed, our personnel can replace the floor right down to the foundation.

If the wall frames need extensive replacement, we make certain to have the original blueprints before starting. If it is possible, we can adjust the placement of the walls to expand room size or even add a room to the existing floorplan. Our technicians and carpenters can also rebuild and redesign the roof as long as the changes do not exceed stress requirements of the home. SERVPRO can provide technicians to remediate mold damage from small patches to entire structures. We stress our goal of remediating, rather than replacing or rebuilding. We always offer what is in the best interest of our customers.

Restoring and rebuilding a home after a mold infestation can be a complicated process. SERVPRO of Forsyth and Dawson Counties is here to help you put it all back together, even if we need to start from the ground up. Call us at (770) 887-1962 today to get started.
